The Thompson submachine gun, named after its inventor John T. Thompson, was an early model of submachine gun invented in 1919 as a gun designed to clear trenches with ease. Despite many models being made, the M1928 model became the icon of the Prohibition era and was in common use at the time, preferred by law enforcement and criminals alike for its ergonomics, compactness and its high rate of automatic fire. Despite being complex, expensive to manufacture and requiring constant maintenance, it was popular until 1971, when it was retired from official U.S. military service.
The original, fully automatic models are no longer manufactured but can be made at home with the right schematics and materials.
